New Project to preserve Wirangu

"AN Aboriginal community risks losing its language because too much emphasis is placed on Pitjantjatjara."

The South Australia Sunday Mail reports on a new three year project to "preserve and regenerate" the critically endangered local language Wirangu. The article states that one of the causes for endangerment is a focus on Pitjantjatjara in schools, and states that Wirangu only has two fluent speakers left.
